    im in highschool and i want to post my iweb site online, right now im using a .mac trial to do it, but time is running out and i need a host! it has to be free because money is not something i have just laying around.

    please, just a free host, hopefully with no banners:confused:

    Sorry to say but free + addless doesn't seem to exist these days.

    Free and adless if you sign up as an advanced user (and you should be fine if you know basic HTML).

    No banners = no money for the host = host disappears along with your site.

    Perhaps you could ask your parents if they would mind paying for you (throw all the educational aspects of having a site into your marketing pitch and the fact $30 or so per year is a minimal amount ;)) or alternatively, Christmas is coming up. ;)

    Look at

    I've never used them, however some nut in my home town has had a website on there for a couple of years. It's always been up when I checked it. They've got strict rules about porn, piracy, music, downloads, etc., but they are free and (they say) they won't place ads on your pages.

    Might be worth looking into. But read their Rules & FAQ's closely first.

    Sorry for hijacking but...

    ... anyone know of a free hosting site that supports PHP? :confused:

    Yahoo's one (Geocities?) used to, they used to give a free mysql database too, no ads. But then one day they put on a frame at the right hand side.

    Have a look at

    They offer cheap packages and my site has never been down either.

    I've used before. Not bad for a free host. It was more of an experiment than anything, but it was OK.

    Oh, and they offer php and mysql as well.

    I'm a firm believer in the "you get what you pay for" line of thought, but my experience with them was positive. Nothing special, but nothing negative either.
